We arrived into Cortona on a warm but very wet thunderstorm late afternoon. From the onset, Cortona inspired us and took our breath away. oh beautiful beautiful Cortona. San Michele was like an oasis in unfamiliar surroundings. We were welcomed in such courteous and hospitable way. We were shown all the rooms available so we could choose. We of course... More

Returning to Cortona is always a joy. San Michel has a staff of incredible people who are helpful and kind. The rooms are beautifully appointed and so comfortable. The breakfast is beyond sumptuous and a true value. I wouldn't consider any other hotel in Firenze!

Booked this Hotel via Voyage Prive for a 7 day stay.... Whilst the hotel is listed as 4 star, we would put it at 3 star. Cotona like many Tuscan towns is a medieval town built high on top of a hill! The Major problem here, particularly for older or unfit people is the walk up a Hugely steep incline... More

Lovely communal areas in a gorgeous building. Our room (standard) is of an acceptable size, with all expected features (TV, air conditioning etc) but no complimentary water or coffee/tea 🙁 Staff are friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is standard (with filter coffee only...). Only cooked part are eggs and boiled (rather than fried!) bacon. Overall a nice experience but that... More

We were in Cortona for a wedding and I wanted to stay in town so I can walk every where. Parking is a problem in Cortona; they don't allow cars in the city but Hotel SanMichele has 7 parking spots. I reserved a parking spot before we arrived in town because I knew we were going to get a car... More

We had such a great stay here. The room was enormous and the bath was modern. No noise from other rooms. The breakfast is fine and a very friendly attentive lady looked after us each morning. She gave us some helpful tips about touring around. Cortona is a beautiful town.

We stayed for just under a week but thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and location of the hotel, The room was big and the bed comfortable. We were lightly concerned by the ancient (and not functional) stone sink and slab but without enquiring as to their original purpose we were very comfortable and content. Very good front-desk staff and helpful team... More

Recently stayed here for 5 nights. Booked a suite and requested room with an outside terrace area. When we arrived we were greeted like family and given advice on parking for free just outside the city gate. Building itself is a former palace with lots of rooms and levels making it feel very homely. Almost at the centre of town... More

The best location in town! Close to the main square and all the best restaurants. Friendly staff, nice room, and wonderful buffet breakfast. Large comfortable reading room and private garden area. Provided a reasonably priced shuttle service to and from the train station.
